Gateway to India is nestled in a row of competitive restaurants on Hillview Avenue, but holds its own. If you like new tastes, interesting combinations, and hot (and I mean HOT--if so desired) spicy foods, do try this fine restaurant. Lamb Vindaloo is the hothot favorite of my husband and myself, though I have to pace myself and drink lots of water, but chicken Tandoori is also delicious. You may request the amount of heat you desire and the kitchen will accommodate. We also, on our last visit, and we plan to go often, tried an appetizer called "Vegetable Pakora" which had the crispiest coating around a veggie center that was delicious, especially dipped in their special sauces.There is a large list of vegetarian offerings. The decor in the restaurant is very beautiful a la India, and we prefer the back room, which has more of a sense of privacy and coziness. Service was prompt and attentive (more water!!) but just one thing needs improvement, --the beers tend to be on the warm side and Americans prefer their beers COLD, but as we heard another patron mention this matter to the waiter, perhaps that lesson has been learned by the time you read this.
